    OK so that is now SIX of these things I own....



    The yellow DHL truck came by today and dropped off a box for me, it's heavy....



    Yep, that makes SIX routers I now own, I know it is a small number compared to some, but for a guy living in downtown Tokyo I think is is a fair number.


    I'm really impressed with this tool, looks well thought out and well built.

    I own a Hitachi M8, M12 a Porter Cable 1001-T2 a Milwaukee 5625 that lives in my table and the fairly new Bosch Colt trim router.

    Why a sixth router?

    It will be an integral part of another tool that should be here fairly soon, and while I could have used the Hitachi M12 the plunge function on that router sticks all the time, it is very frustrating, so I decided to buy this router instead and be done with it, and boy am I happy I did, this looks like a really good tool that I will see a lot of service out of and it will earn it's keep fairly quickly.

    Here in Japan I could not even buy this router, but a similar size and power PC router is about $450, I got this delivered for $360 and I had a $100 gift card to spend as well.

    Who has this router?

    What do you think?

    Cheers!

    To me Routers fall under the same catagory as clamps, you can never have too many, altho, I only have 4.

    Congratulations on six boxes.

    And six routers as well. I am wondering what the tool is that it will attach to? Since plunge router, I am wondering if something like the Woodrat?

    You sir would be correct.

    I have a bunch of chairs to build for Cirque du Soleil, and no easy, fast and repeatable way to do a bunch of mortises.
